At Lighting Service, Inc. our technicians are certified, so you know you have the very best people working on your facility.
By putting new, energy efficient components into your existing fixtures, you can save up to 50% on your facility's monthly utility bill.
"By performing a retrofit to your existing lighting system, you'll get better light distribution at the work surface, which increases productivity, all while using a fraction of the energy."
Lighting retrofits replace energy inefficient T12 lamps with
smaller, more energy efficient lamps like T8's or T5's.

Under today’s standards, many of the lighting systems in service are very energy inefficient. These days technology is available which provides the same amount, or more light, yet operates using 25%-60% less energy.
Most people are familiar with the old florescent lighting fixtures found in many office buildings. A lot of times they are dull, poorly lit fixtures with large, round, T12 lamps. These lamps are powered by old, magnetic ballasts which consume an over abundance of energy – most of which is wasted.
New, electronic ballasts are much more energy efficient than the magnetic ballasts. Some of them use only 25% as much energy as it’s magnetic predecessor. Though they use a fraction of the energy, they still provide enough power to provide your facility with equal or greater light levels than you current system is providing.
* Less energy used translates directly into lower utility bills from the electric company.
* This procedure not only provides better light and energy bills, it is also good for the environment.
These old components, magnetic ballasts and T12 lamps, are so inefficient that they are actually being phased out of production by manufacturers because they do not meet today's standards for energy efficiency. Though the phase out is set to take place over the next few years, most companies have already began phasing them out of their buildings as well. The new technology not only costs less to maintain, it looks nicer, provides better light and lasts longer.
Right now is the best time to make the switch from old, inefficient T12s and magnetic ballasts to energy efficient lighting as these projects are eligible for multiple incentives that significantly offset the cost of the capitol improvement.
1) Utility Incentives: Energy Efficient Retrofits may be eligible forincentives.
2) EPAct Tax Incentive: Projects that update the lighting system in a specific area are also eligible for a line item tax deduction good for up to .60/square foot of the area that was updated.
3) Raw Energy Savings: Especially now that the rates for energy have increased, you can recoup the cost of your upgrade even faster since they can save you up to 50% on your lighting bill.
